Rush Limbaugh is officially ashamed of America for "the first time," he announced Thursday.

The reason? The so-called budget sequestration, which President Obama and Democrats say could do serious damage to the economy if Congress can't do a deal before March 1st. Limbaugh wasn't buying it.

The radio host said that "to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it's being, it just makes me ashamed."

"Here they come -- sucking us in, roping us in, panic here, fear there, crisis, destruction, no meat inspection, no cops, no teachers, no firefighters, no air traffic control," he said. "I'm sorry, my days of getting roped into all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class of both parties play along all of this -- it's insulting. I don't know how else to describe it!"

So, you're on notice, America: Rush Limbaugh is embarrassed to be seen with you.
